News from Chester.
The Standard of this week gives a
full accouit of thearrest of two of the
party implicated in the murder of Mr.
Ai.;x. D. WAALCrr. These are ie
gro men, who have confessed the
whole tImIng, and it comes out that a
a white ma1, one Br.1. MonnIs (1lia1s

was at the head of it. $500 reward is
offered in the talmrd for his arrest.

The leigii of this addreSS preclndes
the pubCieation of tin. whole of it inl nlle
issue. We have read the address with
a critic's eve, and nimust confess that we
are supprised that papers that urged tIhe
Comivention can obj(ect to anything inl it,
for in t.hat paper,, draw n tip by Northern
men, t.hose men went jlust as far as they
possibly could go. consistent witi their

"A Suggestion."
The iisinuations of "Poliey" are
wholly gratuitous. Ie lias been anti
cipated, he might have seen, by our
last issue in which we said "with this
expose we are done ;"-that is we are
done with objections. Besides we
have no controversy with those We (p
pose in opinion, and mean to have none.
The whole matter resolves itself sim
ply into this. We told our opponents
they would be disappointed. Many
have confessed it. We simply gave
their confessions. So ."Policy" need
not shake his disappointed head at us
and say we did it. If pride of opin
ion keeps him "of the same opin
ion still," lie must beware not to
throw stones. We have done just
what his allies have done-endorsed
the good, ignored the bad. Can can
dor, can justice, can any moan with a
particle of liberality in his soul ob
jet to that ? Med.

If President ,JoHiNsoN adopts
the course indicated below, and biy
"prompt, vigorous and decisive ac

-The New York News, of Saturday,
says:
Lot the President strike the opposi
tion when and where he can. And
first, let him oust every radieal office
holder that depends upon the Federal
patronage. Not a man of them should
be retained in any office over which
the Exoecutive authority hias control.
That done, let him take measures to
protect the Southern members of (Con.
gross In their seats at the next session.
oehas declared that they have the
right to be there, and ho should pro.
teetthem in th* right. The emer
genoy calls for prompt, vigorous and
decisive action, and every blew dealt
by the Executive hand will be an in.

This is Clever.

te's Address to the'President,

of the Convention, is ex

ana Kisone in which =y can all
wish the President good-speed.

"We hope, sir, that the proceedings
of the Convention will cause you to

firmness, to the coune which you are
pursuing, by satisfying you that lhe

wish which lies nearest to their heart

Union at the earliest possible. moment

only be accoilished by the measures
which you are pursuing ; and in the
disclarge of the duties which these
imipose tpon you, we, as did every
neiber of the Convention, again, for
ourselves, indivilually tender you
"our profound respects and assurance
of our cordial and sincere support."
Thisis Candid.

A Suggestion.
Every District except two, we be
lieve, was represented in the Colutn
bia Convention ; the State was fully
represented in the Philadelphia Con
vention ; thlese Convention.s Ilave as
semibled and adjourned. So the pa
pers say.
Mally Iersons, some of tilem miCn1 of
sense, think that tie action of the
Philadelphia Convention will do good.
But if the Radical papers can publish
ertracts from Souittliern paper lihere
and there showing that the South re
pudiate the action of that Convention,
no good can he (one. It will be assu -
(ed thait thtese papers, althlough in fact
they mauiy be exceptional eases repre
sent not only thleir localities, but their
States.
Can not paperskeep silent, and ex
eise a little pruaence for their coun
try's good ? 'Where a District after
full antd fair discussion has decided
upon01 a line of policy, has an editor
thle right to place the District in a
fal so position ? It will be0 assumed
thlat papers represent the sentiment of
their Districts. We know that this ii
not correct, yet such is always the as
sumption.
We know how powerful pride ol
opinon is :and at the same time we
know that it is possible for any man,
editor or not, to be mistaken.
We beg those who are not responsi
ble for the Stats being represented ir
the Philadelphia Convention, not t<
become responsible for the guilt ol
defeating the good results that mtay be
produced by that Convention.

g e.aiplo
Threb ministers, charged with the
crime of preaching the glorious Gospel
of the Son of God, were arraigned be
fore a certain Judge.. They were
regularly indieted, and it was under
stood -that-the -proof.against-them was
very olear..
"Aro- youa preacher V" said the
judge to one of them.
"Yes,.sir," replied the culprit.
"To what denomination do you be
long ?"
"I am a Christian, sir," (,with dig
lity.)
"A Christian I What do you mean
by thitt ? Are not all preachers Chris
tials ?"
"I belong the to sect usually called,
but wrongly called Cambellites. (Not
so much dignity.)
"Ah, then, you believe in baptizing
pcople, m order that they may be born
again, (10 you "
"I do, sir." (Defiantly.)
"Mr. Sheriff, discharge that man!
lie is an innocent man 1 Hie is in
diet for preaching the Gospel, and
there isn't a word of Gospel in the
stulf that lie preaches! It's only some
of Alexander Campbell's nonsenio.
Discharge the man !"
Exit Campbellite, greatly rejoicing.
"Are you a preacher 1" sa,id the
judge addressilig the next criminal.
"l am, Sir," said the miscreant.
"Of what denomination are you ?"
"I am a Methodist, Sir." (His look
showed it.)
"Do you believe in falling from
grace "
"I do,Sir." (Without hesitation.)
"Do you believe in sprinkling peo
ple instead of baptizing them I"
"I believe that the people can be
baptized by sprinkling." [Much of
fended.]
"Do you believe in baptizing ba
bies ?"
"It is my opinion, Sir, that infants
ought to be baptized." [Indignantly.]
"Not a word of Scr*ipture for any
thing of the kid, Sir I" shouted his
Honor. "Mr. Sheriff, turn that man
loose I le is no preacher. The Gos
pel is the truth, and there isn't a word
of trute in what that man teaches.
Turn him loose !-It's ridiculous to
indict men on such frivolous pretenses.
Turn him loose !"
Methodist disappears, not at all hurt
in his feelings by the judicial abuse lie
had received .
"What are you, Sir ?" said the
Judge to the third felon.
"Soie peoplo call me a preacher,
Sir." (Meckly.)
"WIat is your denomination ?"
"~ am a Baptist." (Ilead up.)
lis Ionor's countenance fell, and
lie looked sober and sad. After a
pause, lie s4id :
"Do you believe in salvation by
grace ?"
"I do." (Firmlly.).
"D)o you teach that illmnersion onlly
is baptism ?"
"That is my doctrine." (Earnestly.)
"And you baptize non11 but thlose
who believe in Jesus ChIrist 1"
"That is my faith and practice.
(With enmphasis.)
"My frIend, I fear it will go hard
with you ; I see you are indited for
plreachming tile gospel, and it appears
to mec by your ownI confession you are
guilty."
Baptist looked pretty blue.
"May it please your Honor," said
tihe Baptist's counsel, springing to his
feet, "that man never preached thle
gospel. I have heard him say a hun
dred timpes that he onlytried. I have
heard him try myself."
"Mr. Sheriff, discharge this man!i
HIe's not indicted for trying I Thlere's
nothing said about the mere effort!i
Let hmim go, sir I Turn him loose!i
Send him a bout 1his business ! I am
astonishled that the State's Attorney
shlould annoy the court with frivolous
indictments."
Exit Baptist determined to "try"
again.
Court adjourned.
"God save the State and this hon
.orable court!i" exclaimed the Sheriff.
"Aynen 1" said the three preach~ers.

as the stoiymay seem, it has a moral.
